Recipe: BBQ Turkey stuffed Sweet Potato

Some nights I just crave something different.  This recipe uses a couple of staples that I eat all the time but adds a bit...


  • Large sweet potato (about 1 pound)
  • Onion
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce (I use sugar free)
  • Shredded cheese (I use part skim)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Microwave sweet potato for 4 minutes
  • Carefully cut sweet potato in half
  • Rub cut side with a little olive oil place on cookie sheet - cook for 45 minutes
  • Carefully scoop insides of sweet potato out and into a bowl
  • Rub skin side of potato with olive oil, add salt and pepper, put empty side down on cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes more
  • Cook ground turkey and chopped onions together
  • Mash up sweet potatoes in the bowl, add the cooked turkey and onions, barbeque sauce and some cheese - mix up well.
  • Divide mixture between the 2 sweet potato skins, top with some cheese and put back in the oven for 3-5 minutes
And then?  ENJOY!!!
